The president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, has indicated a wish to continue the experience of the video for the next world.
“Without the assistance of video for the arbitration, we would have had a tournament different. And a tournament which would have been a little less fair.” On the eve of the final of the Confederations Cup, between Chile and Germany, Gianni Infantino is back on the experience of the unpublished arbitration video in an official tournament.

The president of the highest institution of world football, is adamant about its inputs and its efficiency, while promising adjustments. “Up to now, this method has been successful. We learn, we improve, we continue the tests. We need to work more on some details, on the communication and speed of decisions.”
Gianni Infantino, arrived in February 2016 at the head of FIFA, has stated that the assistance video would also be applied, in a year, during the World Cup 2018 in Russia. “There is nothing to prevent its use, as regards myself,” he said.
The method of the arbitration video, however, has generated many controversies during the Confederations Cup, particularly in Germany-Cameroon or Portugal-Chile.
